AFAIU, you can compile your own C++ code with 'g++ -mno-cygnus' on
cygwin, and are then able to link with a windows-native python runtime.
That's the equivalent of using a mingw toolchain directly.
I'm not sure this is the best time to experiment with toolchains, though,
so marking this variant as not available may be the right thing to do.
